FIFA 17 rewrote the book on the sports game ‘Story Mode.’ I bought the game on the chance that there might be some fun multiplayer football action during the lull in late summer, but ended up getting engrossed in Alex Hunter’s tumultuous journey into professional soccer.

Easily glanced over, but still very impressive, is how beautiful this game is. Not just the green grass, but the flow of movement through the players is so effortless, leaving no doubt that EA is at the top of their game when it comes to the world’s most popular sport. Thanks for Alex Hunter, FIFA 17.
